Ray was born in the USA. At a early age he
developed a passion for both bicycling and travel. After traveling
in North America, Central America and South America he found
his way to Asia.
He has traveled and lived throughout the Himalaya
since 1992. Ray has cycled more than 8000 miles (13,300 km) in
the Himalaya on four different trips.
He is one of the few non-Tibetans to have
completed the pilgrimages to Tsari, Lapchi and Kailash; the three
most important pilgrimage sites in Tibet. He is most likely the
only person to have done these three pilgrimages in Teva sandals.
He now makes his home in the Eastern Himalayan
town of Darjeeling, India.
